I have set various custom shortcuts for all apps on my mac in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts. These are:

  • Ctrl + Opt + Left Arrow - Move Window to Left Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Right Arrow - Move Window to Right Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Up Arrow - Zoom
  • Ctrl + Opt + Down - Move to Built-in Retina Display

These shortcuts work for all other applications on my mac (Catalina 10.15.4), but not with Firefox (version 76.0.1). On the Maximise window where these options reside via mouse, the shortcuts do show up, and pressing the options with a mouse does work, but the shortcuts do not.

I try to add the two-step-authentication to my account, but when I scan the QR-code and enter the generated security code I get the error message "two-step-authentication required"; so it tells me I have to enable two-step-authentication before I can enable two-step-authentication?

I used to see a feature in a question/answer editor here at FireFox help that allowed images to be displayed inline instead of only as thumbnails at the end of an answer or as links in the text of an answer. I saw answers with inline images today. How do you do that? Attached image shows what I mean. The attached image also is an example of an image not displaying inline.

YouTube studio features; adding subtitles and blurring does not work in firefox. While uploading subtitles, I select the subtitle from the computer, but when I say upload, it does not. The same screen remains. The problem with blurring is that the selection tool does not appear when the blurring screen is opened. These features work in chrome

I have a W7 laptop with IE 11, and Firefox. I need both browsers for different programs (scan and to deposit checks, and Mozilla to manage photos in my website). I never run the browsers simultaneously. When I use Firefox, all is well until I suddenly see a blue screen with a bunch of printing. The screen does not last long enough for me to read everything, but it does mention if this is not the first time I've seen this screen, I am supposed to do something with BIOS chaching or shadowing. I have NO idea what this means or how to do this, as I use my computer for basic, simple programs. I haven't downloaded any new programs, and have been reluctant to download new Firefox patches since the blue screen seemed to happen more frequently after updating Firefox. I've scanned for viruses, and have also run chk dsc, to no avail. This never happens when I use IE11, only when I use Firefox. If someone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it. However, please don't tell me to get W10. I don't care how wonderful this OS is supposed to be, I cannot use it. My one laptop with W10 has only been used once and I refuse to use it. If you have suggestions, please explain them simply since I am NOT computer saavy. Thank you.

My internet and computer are fast. Recently, with the latest versions, it is taking about 5 seconds before a website starts to appear. If I close the tab and go back to the website, it is almost instant.

What is ff doing that is taking it so long. Is it verifying the website or some such thing? How can I speed this up.

Chrome and Edge both load the sites instantly as well, so it's FF that is slow, but only on the first visit after launching FF.

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

I have been experiencing extreme slow down of Video since last week in May. I'm on Win7 and have System restored 2x, Malwarebytes 1x, Norton full scan is done nightly and the problem has not been found while the symptoms worsen daily. Today I tested Chrome (I prefer Firefox so I ask for assistance to resolve this) and have had no slowing, & I'm viewing the same You Tube Vids. One other item that may be relevant. The yellow info bar which notifies that the site loading hangup is a Website with the user option to stop it or wait. Meanwhile the You Tube I'm watching is the only site I opened, and is not affected by the Stop it selection. Thanks in advance, Paul

So, this thing keeps appearing when i click to write an email or password, and covers up the bar, so then I can't see what I'm typing, which really bothers me because I have dyslexia and always swap letters. How do I disable this? I already tried to disable the "ask to save logins" option and it didn't solve anything. I use Linux Elementary OS.

So I keep getting a little message when I open Firefox saying that there is an update available, however, when I click update it says applying update and then just stays there with a spinning wheel. This has happened multiple times so I am stuck at 76.0.1 (64-bit) right now.

I have had Firfox as my primary browser for years and recently had to reload due to slowness, etc. Since reloading it is very cumbersome on the sign in as have to sign in with email and get a six digit code emailed to me to sign in. There must be a glitch and I am sure there is another way other than giving a code every time sign in . Would appreciate some support in this.

Kindly,
